Kathryn and Lindy Jones are identical twin designers who have been based in
New York for over 17 years. Educated at the London fashion school Kingston,
they have worked for several major fashion houses including Ralph Lauren and
Andrea Jovine. They came back together again to launch their own collection
4 years ago. Finalists in this year’s Fashion Group International Rising
Star Award, they have also just won the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award.
Palmer Jones was born out of a desire to create heirloom, dreamlike pieces.
Combining their creativity and technical expertise they have created a line
of exquisitely embroidered and tailored jackets. Sensually detailed these items
are more than clothes, they are collectors pieces in limited editions.
Historical embroideries of the 18th century are brought to life. Hand carved
abalone flowers are combined with crystals and beads from around the world.
Each piece is uniquely cut and embellished to appeal to the eclectic, always
evolving human spirit. Layered into this collection are urban, modern wovens
and knits. Their love of luxurious fabrics from Italy and France meld their
European flair and love of the past with the confidence of American sportswear.
